Poker Pro Jonathan Little is one of the most famous online and offline poker professionals with over $7,000,000 in live tournament earnings. Apparently, he has been banned from playing on the popular site America’s Cardroom (ACR). Little has been banned for providing a caveat to his followers and his students about America’s Cardroom. What followed were a series of tweets that went into the depth of the issue as he had been kicked off by ACR.
Despite me frequently speaking critically about ACR (which is now a ban-worthy offense), they cashed out the $19,000 that was in my account. Thanks for not robbing me! 4/?

Philip Nagy, Chief Executive Officer and host of ACR also tweeted justifying the issue. In a series of tweets, he mentioned,“It’s one thing if you’re going to treat WPN like some side chick. But I’ll be damned if I’m going to give you the privilege of getting to f**k me on the daily if you’re going to punch me in the head while doing it.”
If I said, john is the best of your shit choices in coaching; there's no world you could call that an endorsement whether I felt that way or not, nor would I expected him to put up with it.

The America’s Cardroom staff diplomatically tried to answer the Poker Pro’s issue and emphasized that about their website protocols that, “We reserve the right in our T’s and C’s to refuse business at our discretion.” Their argument makes a fair point that there is absolutely nothing that has ever said that offering online poker is against the law in the U. S. despite the protests of some players.
The legitimacy of the argument is mainly because it addresses the issue of online poker sites. In the past, online poker sites have caused security issues. In 2011, three major online poker sites in the US, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and UB.com were shut down by the U. S. Department of Justice on charges of fraud. The issue of online sites regulation has been in vogue since quite sometime. Recently, in 2015, it was estimated that players who had a bankroll on Lock Poker had lost around $10-$15 million.
A few weeks ago, players experienced a similar issue when GG Poker’s website had some technical problems while World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online event was underway. For more updates about Poker across the world, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com
